    Story
    "This is Greatest Speeches of Humankind!"
    What made the experience of listening to The Greatest Speeches of Great Women the most enjoyable?

    These are the actual speeches, recorded at the time. Some are a little screechy, but all are thought provoking.


    Any additional comments?

    This should be required "listen to" in social studies!
